Confused about sun / shade!

I'm aware I probably sound a complete dunce for asking this, but in my south facing garden one part of it is quite narrow (about 20ft across), with a 6ft fence at either side. The border against the eastern fence gets sun almost all day, but I'm a bit confused about what plants I should be choosing for the border against the western fence. From now until late September-ish it gets full sun until lunchtime but then is in deep shade for the rest of the day. There's no in-between! The soil is moist but free-draining. So what plants should I choose - sun lovers or shade lovers?

Most things seems to grow well.
In the 6ft bit I've got several geraniums, bowmans root, penstemons, astrantia, 3 types of mock orange, veronica, campanula, phlox, astilbe, meadow rue and much more. I grow roses along the fence and they thrive
I think most of the above are happy in sun or part-shade, so I don't think you're restriced
